Unhappy Not much improvement

Hi everyone,

Looking for a bit of advice. I posted a thread the other day about Mylo not being well. I followed suggestions of getting some slippery elm powder to add to his food and I've been feeding him boiled chicken and rice as he's used to having some cooked meats and he's not been eating his raw food very well for a while now for some reason.

He seems fine in himself, he has an appetite and is drinking, he's playing and running around, he's not going every hour but probably once or twice more than usual. It's very loose most of the time and sometimes it's a bit more solid but still no shape to it. The last couple of mornings his tummy has been making gurgling noises.

Should I just wait it out? Do I need to do anything different? Should I take him to the vets? I feel so sorry for and worried about my little man

Boy, sounds like we are having similar problems. Hope Milo gets to feeling better soon.

Yep. I can empathise with how stressful it is. I'm not used to sick puppies either! Seems lots of Chis have upset tummies at the moment.

do they sell plain yogurt in england you can add a teaspoon to ever meal i usually told to feed smaller meal like 5 per days teaspoon of chicken and rice the slippery elm 1/4 teaspoon try every other meal not other food to see how he does?to bad they don't carry pure pumpkin its easier to figure the amount for the loose stools of course i like the slippery elm for the vomiting.now if you have had him with this food without the raw i would take him to the vet since it has been 4 days now.

Hi Melissa, I'm sorry to hear Mylo is still not right. I haven't got much to add at this point as you seem to be doing all of the suggestions I would have made. I always go down the boiled chicken and rice route when one of mine is unwell so maybe try to continue with that for a bit longer. Admittedly I'm a bit of a panicker where the dogs are concerned so I'd probably be thinking about a vet check if it were me.

I think I'll take a look in the health food shops and perhaps and m&s and see if they do any canned pumpkin. I've been giving the rice and chicken in small meals. I'll try the plain yoghurt. I'm going into the city centre later - is there anything else I can pick up to try? If he's still not right by Monday I'll take him to the vet first thing since they're not open at the weekend. Thanks everyone.
